In 1986 we started Octopussy which was our first project with John Staluppi. Now, 30 years later, we are working on our ninth  project for him: Spectre. The first project was certainly a big challenge since we had to design the fastest motoryacht in the world, but Spectre does not qualify as an average boat either. We are using the Mulder Design High Speed Cruising Hull which, in comparison with a conventional displacement hull, offers a 20 to 30% higher speed, without the use of excessive engine power or light-weight construction. This enables us to build in steel, use standard accommodation constructions and use generous systems to reduce noise and vibration and cruise at 20+ knots with reduced power. The second challenge is to have a shallow draft to use this 69 meter yacht in waters like the Bahamas. We achieved a draft of 2.9 – 3.2m depending on loading condition. The hull is not only very efficient at speeds of 20 knots and above, but also shines at long range cruising speeds. Without excessive tankage we can achieve a range in excess of 6500 Nautical Miles at 12 knots.
The yacht features five decks and the layout is designed to offer big open air spaces and absolute comfort for 12 guests. Accommodation is provided by two owner’s cabins, one with access to an entire private terrace with an exclusive hydromassage tub and a sun lounging area, two VIP cabins on the main deck, and two more guest cabins on the lower deck.
The launch and delivery of the Benetti FB269 M/Y Spectre are planned for early summer 2018.
